Abstract [en]

This research evaluates the Bem Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI) for use in a Swedish setting, and in the process of so doing also compares the distribution of American and Swedish gender roles as elicited by the inventory. A sample of 118 individuals (48 males and 70 females) was used in order to arrive at norms better suited to a Swedish context than those provided by Bem (1974). Reliability and factor analyses were performed and a revised version of the inventory, with acceptable psychometric properties for the Swedish sample, was arrived at and termed BSRI-SE. Comparisons between the original American and the Swedish sample show that differences in the way that femininity, masculinity, androgyny and undifferentiated gender are distributed are not statistically significant. Raw score data for the BSRI-SE, as well as the scoring sheet, are provided for continued standardisation of the inventory. Methods for classification and further research are discussed.
